Eggs: The Right Amount in your Diet
Olivia Pirosko - Nutrition in the News
"The Right Way To Incorporate Eggs Into Your Diet" by Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, is a well written, well organized, easy to follow, informative article with credible resources and research. Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, is a nutrition consultant, spokesperson, recipe developer, writer, and editor. She is the former Senior Editor of Health, Weight Watchers Magazine, and WeightWatchers.com. With her being a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with an advanced degree she is an expert on giving advice about nutrition and is someone who should be listened to. I feel she is a credible author. Although the article was found on www.huffingtonpost.com and was not found on a website ending in .gov, .edu, or .org the U.S. Dietary Guidelines were frequently referenced which is a reliable source of information. Furthermore, in the article the U.S. Dietary Guidelines had a direct link to health.gov which is a reputable site giving even more information. Quotes with informative facts from specific people with professional credentials who were members of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee were also included throughout the article. Additionally, the author always gave the names and credentials of the information providers of a quote. Amy Gorin also referenced a 2015 study and a 2015 Finnish study both published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Although she did not specifically state the name of the studies, both studies are recent and published in a credible journal. The site has been updated once since it was first published. The main critique I have is that there is no works cited at the end of the article. Overall I learned new knowledge in which I did not know before, and I trust that it is true based on the credibility of the author and her resources.
